All About Philodendron ‘Ring of Fire’
Posted on December 09 2022
As a rare Philodendron, the Ring of Fire is on the top of a lot of wish lists! What makes it so remarkable? Long, green, serrated leaves are kissed by surprising splashes of yellow and lime green. This multi-colored variegation means that the Philodendron Ring of Fire plant requires more light than other lookalikes, such as the Jungle Boogie. Aside from that, this is a no-fuss exotic plant!
